Review Policy


Updated May 1, 2016

I am currently NOT actively ACCEPTING REVIEW REQUESTS.


To whom it may concern,

 If you want your book to be featured here, on Icy Cold Reads, it is important to me for you to read my review policy first. My review policy is very simple and will not take long to read.


I prefer YA books of all genres excluding horror or nonfiction and books dealing with religion and politics, which I will not accept.

I do accept e-books as long as they are in the formats of PDF or E-PUB. Please note it takes me a bit longer to read e-books and physical copies will be reviewed first.

I accept all authors, including indie and self published ones.

If you request that I read a book that belongs to a series, it might take a little longer as I do not read series books out of order. I will read the books before it first and that may take some time.

 I ONLY ACCEPT YA and Middle School Grade books – no others will be considered. Please understand I’m a high school student and am only willing to read books that are age appropriate for me. If your book is not suited for those under the age of 18, please do not ask me to review it.

Reviews will be published as soon as I can. Please keep in mind that I am still in school, and school along with grades are very important to me. You can usually expect reviews from 2 weeks after I receive it to 3 months, depending on how busy I am. Reviews will always be posted on the blog, and occasionally on other sites, if requested. (Sometimes, I post the same review from the blog on Goodreads and Amazon also.)

I am also willing to do book promotions on the blog like spotlights and such. All you have to do is email me the details, although I try to limit how many I do.

Please understand that sending me a request does not guarantee that I will read and review your book or even promote it.

You can contact me through my e-mail as stated on the Contact Me page or at reviews@pagingserenity.com.
